San Andreas: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First, we would like to thank Warner Brothers Pictures PH for inviting us to the special 4DX screening of San Andreas at Bonifacio High Street. We are not a fan of the 4DX format as it tends to be a complete distraction while watching. The excessive movements were exhausting, and the "foul" smell adds more hindrances to the whole experience.   

After a massive earthquake hit California, LAFD rescue pilot, Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson) sets out to find his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) and daughter (Alexandra Daddario) in the middle of the wreckage of the whole city. He must use all his survival techniques in order to protect and save the lives of his family. Meanwhile, Dr. Hayes (Paul Giamatti) tries to alert the media to evacuate the city before its too late. 

It is a terrifying film since a lot of reports about an earthquake may happen soon around Metro Manila. It is a devastating calamity that is hard to imagine if it struck into our areas. The film is thrilling, exciting and a compelling disaster flick. However, some of the scenes are a bit hyped-up and the characters seem immortal from getting buried from the rubble. The visuals are spectacular and will be best if seen in 3D. 

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson continues to bring the energy and charisma in every project he's in. He is a remarkable actor and still the Peoples Champion on the ring as well on the big screen. With Carla Gugino's third film with Dwayne Johnson, they had a great chemistry with each other and was believable throughout. We also love Alexandra Daddario's performance, who was truly a spark plug and a complement to the entire film. 

Overall, San Andreas is a complete package. It is an exhilarating disaster film you will surely enjoy, leave you breathless and stress you at the same time. Oh well, Dwayne Johnson just saved the day again.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8.5 out of 10 stars

I thought it was some kind of generic cop movie or something, but it looks like big dumb glorious disaster porn.
